Forces of Darkness
The Hammond-driven trio Spirit in the Dark explores the intense dynamic drama and sophisticated harmonic tensions of modern 70s and 80s gospel music. Their 2015 debut album 'Now Is The Time' features their original funk compositions in the New Orleans style alongside the music of gospel legends like James Cleveland, The Clark Sisters, and Thomas Whitfield. All stripped down to intimate instrumental trio arrangements, highlighted by the vintage keyboard sounds of David Wallumrød, supported by Audun Erlien on electric bass and Anders Engen on drums
